Rentals of kayaks are availble to rent to members and include a paddle. Contributions for joining a normal SierraRios trip includes a kayak for competent paddlers. On such trips, the participant can paddle it most or all of the time. They will be used for other trips in the future and may be availble to rent to members.

You might consider bringing your own kayak or inflatable kayak. You will get a discount on a normal SierraRios trip, especially if the boat is needed (i.e. the boats available are not occupied). We may even purchase from you afterward.
